Jeff Corsi - Paris Interview

 

Back for another ‘3,2,1’ - Vic Harster returns with a brand new installment of stills & stories. More than just a collection of images, Vic brings her subjects into focus through in-depth observation and interviews. On this occasion, Vic takes a deeper look at longboarding powerhouse Jeff Corsi, somehow managing to contain all the action to the frame.

“I had met Jeff Corsi a few times before our first shoot together. We talked a little about my work and I felt he was looking at my pictures in a very gentle and understanding way. Jeff's style is explosive and powerful. The first time we shot together I was super nervous, I really wanted to capture his style in a special way that I was so afraid to fail. But one of the incredible things about Jeff is that he’s extremely kind and nice. He was an incredible help in creating these images I envisioned with a lot of lightness and fun!”
